How to Image or Recover Unstable USB Flash Drives


As for data recovery from USB flash drives, there’re usually several types of data recovery cases including accidental format, deletion, slow recovery, bad sector data recovery, controller corruption repair and recovery, firmware corruption repair and recovery, etc.

We can also devide above cases into two types: chip-on usb flash recovery and chip-off usb flash recovery.

In this article, unstable USB flash drive data recovery(chip-on data recovery) will be focused. This kind of case is easy for all users but users need some professional data recovery hardware tools and adapters.

These tools can actually fix the chip-on recovery cases efficiently;
